Current Opportunities

Student Refugee Program

Yukon College is partnered with World University Services Canada and each year fundraises to sponsor a refugee to be a student at Yukon College.

We just launched the first year of this and in August welcomed a Syrian refugee. We are looking for students who are willing to help us fundraise and get involved!

If you are interested please contact Paige Galette
